So you're ready to apply for a short-term global experience?

Before applying, talk to an academic advisor, confirm your eligibility and create a budget to confirm you can afford to participate. You can only submit one application per application round. If you are unsure which global experience you wish to apply to, speak with an Internships and Global Experiences Coordinator

Winter 2022 Short-term Study Experiences

Applications for Winter 2022 Short-term Study and Internships experiences will open in January 2022.

A final decision to proceed with the in-person global experiences will be made by late March 2022, based on government health regulations and/or travel restrictions at the time.

The health and safety of our students is a top priority, and this approach allows us to start planning these exciting opportunities whilst maintaining the flexibility to adjust our plans.

To apply, follow these steps:

3. Apply to host

Your application with the Internships and Global Experiences Team (IGET) is separate to your application to the host of your nominated short-term global experience. It is your responsibility that you research the application process, deadlines and fees for your nominated host. If you have any questions, you can contact the host directly for further information.  

IGET has no control over whether your application to the host will be approved, and approval by IGET does not guarantee approval by the host. Many short-term global experiences are competitive, popular, have limited places, and hosts usually allocate these places on a rolling basis. 

IGET recommends that you allow sufficient time to have your application assessed by IGET, credit approved by your Faculty (if requested) before the host deadline. IGET recommends that for-credit students wait until their credit has been assessed by their Faculty before applying to the host.  

If your host deadline is approaching and you will not have your full approval (including credit approval) by the deadline, you may need to submit your application to the host before your application is confirmed. IGET does not recommend making any financial commitments to your host or toward your experience until after your application is fully approved by IGET.  If you apply directly to hosts before support for your application is confirmed by IGET, you are doing so at your own risk.   

Apply early

Credit assessments can take 4-6 weeks to be completed so you should apply as early as possible.

Many hosts will require a non-refundable deposit payment to be paid to secure your place in the program (often paid within 10 - 30 days of notification). IGET is unable to expedite your credit assessment if your host deadline is approaching. 

Students should take these time-frames into consideration when applying to participate in a short-term global experience.
